Hi Guys,

First of all, I'm not a Linux guy but I heard that squid is good with WCCP.

I recently installed squid on my ubuntu server but I'm having problems starting the process. I get this error:

Failed to start Squid :

FATAL: MIME Config Table /usr/share/squid/mime.conf: (2) No such file or directory
Squid Cache (Version 2.6.STABLE14): Terminated abnormally.
CPU Usage: 0.000 seconds = 0.000 user + 0.000 sys
Maximum Resident Size: 0 KB
Page faults with physical i/o: 0

where do I load this mime.conf file?
